There will be a hotly contested Republican primary for one of the county supervisor seats being vacated for the 2018 election. Several of the candidates are neighbors.
According to the Humboldt County Auditor’s Office, four candidates have filed papers to be on the ballot for the June 5 Republican primary for Supervisor District 2, a seat currently being held by Carl Mattes of Humboldt.
Mattes is currently serving his 12th year on the Board and announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking re-election.
District 2 represents the southwest portion of the city of Humboldt, all of Corinth Township and the southern portion of Weaver Township.
Candidates on the ballot include Jim Crabtree, who resides on 9th Street South in Humboldt. The other three declared candidates are Todd George, Sandy Loney and Brian Skow, all of whom live on 11th Street SW.
There are no Democrat filings for the supervisor seat.
Other incumbents running for office are unopposed. They include Bruce Reimers, Supervisor District 1; Rick Pedersen, Supervisor District 3; County Attorney Jon Beaty; County Treasurer Jana Bratland and County Recorder Diane Amundsen. All are running on the Republican ticket.
